Coral le- restaurant was amazing. Stuffed mushrooms for entree was incredible! Even for two non mushroom eaters, we devoured them! Next, I had the seafood marinara pasta which was the best meal I've had. The mrs had chicken stuffed with sun dried tomato and camembert. She loved it too! Highly recommend going here as not only was the food great...

Overnight stay on our way south. Rooms were clean and quiet. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Food was fantastic, but it is pricey. Stayed with 2 small children and got room service. Handy location, pool is great, but weather was cool and pool was cold. Return guests and would stay again.

We had an overnight here recently on our way south. The rooms were clean and quiet and the staff helpful but the restaurant was really something special. A bit expensive but the food was sensational. Would stay again just for the restaurant.
